|Can you guys help me figure out what might be wrong with this succulent?

|I'm not sure that's anything to be concerned about. If it is, it's not something I recognize. Some of my Echeverias get a little leathery and brown in the sun this time of year because the light is close to its annual maximum. Here's an example from a couple of weeks ago on the patio... Echeveria subrigida with some brown spots near the ends of the leaves. Not anything I would worry about.
Whenever you suspect a plant may be getting too much sun, try moving it to a more protected location and see if its appearance changes. When a plant seems to be stressed in a bad way, I try to provide less sun and see if it recovers. Judging by the plants behind your Echeveria, it is getting a reasonable amount of sun. Your risk of fungal complications is much reduced by good light and proper air flow... so that's not something I often see under good growing conditions.
